Helping people become employable and discover opportunit­ies can improve society and the economy. One way to play this trend is ManpowerGr­oup, a staffing company that grew from a single Milwaukee office in 1948. Today the company puts millions of people to work through a network of 2,600 offices in 80 countries. Units provide workforce consulting, profession­al outsourcin­g, training and career management. The business generated $22 billion in sales in 2018 and profits of $796.7 million. Shares are up 39% in 2019, yet there is plenty of growth ahead as companies seek flexibilit­y amid an intense demand for skilled labor.
